Wow what a special precious Tzidkonis she was.
The first and third photo brings back so many memories of her in CGI in the early 80’s.
Her infirmary was next to the Baal Shem Tov building.
What a gracious person she was. She cared for us as her own children.

May she be a powerful Meilitz Yosher, a Gute Beter for us all.
May we be Zoyche to see her soon

She was a special part of my youth

In 1973 I came to camp for the second trip. The day after I arrived I had chicken pox. I was in bunk beis. Lasky who recently passed away was my counselor. For a week I was in the infirmary. Each day she visited me 6 times not only to check on me but also to help me deal emotionally being away from home for the 1st time. She was a very special kind person.

Bde she was so special

Mrs Lipskar was a rare gem! Always with a smile and kind word. It was impossible not to smile thinking about her. She was so loved by her children, nieces, nephews, friends. She left an impression on us all. With gratitude to Hashem she showed us all how to be grateful for what is and what we have. She will be missed. המקום ינחם אתכם. BD”H. Sending hugs.

Honored to have met with Mrs.Lipskar on her visits to South Africa. A beautiful person both inwardly and outwardly.
Proud to call her son R’Mendel Lipskar ‘my shliach’
